In addition to the legal grounds and criminal culpability, countries often stipulate additional requirements and regulations for performing abortions under their jurisdiction. These can be used to more clearly outline the specific instances under which an induced abortion is permissible, as well as to determine the process to obtain authorization for a lawful abortion. A country might, for example, impose gestational limits for an abortion performed for a particular reason. Other common types of requirements relate to the number and cadre of personnel required to authorise an abortion, mandatory third-party consent and various other requirements including mandatory counselling and waiting periods.
